"Gates of Nineveh" Assesses Damage to Hatra Gallery

The Assyriology website Gates of Nineveh continues its assessment of the damage to the Mosul Museum with a post on the damage to statues in the Gallery dealing with ancient Hatra. (I previously linked to their Part I report here.)

The short version: "The damage by ISIS to the artistic legacy of Hatra has been catastrophic."
